yes, look at the high energy not only of the band at this free show for the Columbia Students on May 3, 1968:

but in the audience as well...
the jaw dropping at 1:03...
the young boy banging on Mickey Hart's high hat...

and btw, the mystery of what they were actually playing (in at least part of this footage) could be solved by a musician who takes a close look at the frames from about 0:38 through 0:42, where we get a clear if brief view of Weir, Lesh and Garcia fingering their fretboards.

Try to recreate what they're doing, and that should reveal the answer to the mystery!

Professionally filmed, it's a shame there isn't more.... I don't think it's a clip of one song though, they probably took random shots from throughout the event.
But at 1:05, is that Lesh singing while Garcia plays chords?? Too blurry for me to tell for sure.

A good soundtrack would be the Alligator from 5/18/68!
